Ah, the tricks of the trade revealed  >:D
A lot of people run a race to see who is the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.

This thread is a bit old, but I just found it and honestly am a bit confused. Why do so many people think this tiny device would need to be even smaller?
Removing the mics only makes it such a tiny bit smaller that I really can't see the point.
Has anyone really had trouble getting one of these info a venue? I guess after previously having got much larger recorders in with no problem, this one seems crazy small to me already.

The old mics are an eyesore and easily detectable by their bright copper heads, some of us want more  >:D options for certain venues. Before chopping mine, I would gaff the mics to reduce the visibility.

I made mine with the mindset that it would be a clamp rig or backup for board feeds, so the mics are useless in either case. Would make for a pretty great drop rig for field recording where size and not standing out from nature is also a concern.

That all said, my Zoom F3 took it's place this pretty soon after. It was a fun afternoon project to tinker with and could be done with minimal skills.

Because when I'm >:D I'm bringing in multiple packs and recorders. Plus I never use internal mics and find them to be a waste. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
